The Yale-born Junzi Kitchen is expanding

The first New York location for fast-casual Chinese restaurant Junzi Kitchen will open on June 21 near Columbia University. The New Haven-based restaurant was conceived by Yale grads Yong Zhao, Wanting Zhang, and Ming Bai with chef Lucas Sin, who created a Northern China-based menu of noodle bowls and bings in the first location in 2015.

Junzi Kitchen has a Chipotle-like menu, with either a bing or noodles as the base, with various meats, vegetables, garnishes, and sauce options to mix in. The full menu for the NYC location is below and includes some rather cheffy ingredients for a fast-casual chain, such as chive ash and shrimp salt.
